Wieniawski's Vibes - a series of film lectures



On July 10 2020, on the 185th anniversary of Henryk Wieniawski's birth, we began a series of film lectures on this greatest Polish violinist in history. A feature film has not been made about his life yet. It's a pity! For he was the king of the violin and the king of life. A gambling virtuoso, for whom playing and music were the biggest addiction. 

Frankly speaking, Henryk Wieniawski visited all the places that were within his reach. His life is one big journey saturated with interesting events and experiences. You can build a number of separate stories about each of them. In the meantime, we will try to intrigue you and introduce you to those elements of Henryk Wieniawski's life that seem extremely attractive to us - the most vibrating, restless, fascinating! Hence, the title of our series: “Wieniawski’s Vibes". We begin presentation of a man whose life and work were truly extraordinary. Counting on your approval, looking forward to your presence and constructive feedback, let us begin. Do stay with us. 

The premiere of the episode 2 is on Wednesday, August 12 at noon (CEST).
Consecutive episodes will have their premieres in August and September, every Wednesday. 

Dr hab. Alina Mądry, prof. UAM, Chairwoman of the Scientific and Editorial Board of the Complete Works of Henryk Wieniawski tells about the life of the violinist and composer
